I know that one can jump to different frames using hyperlinks and beamer buttons as in

\hyperlink{label}{\beamerbutton{displayed text}}

However, is there also a way to jump to, say, the fourth slide ("build stage") of a frame?

To be more concrete, suppose my frame is

  \only<4>{Some text}

Then what link would directly lead me to the pdf page that displays "some text"?


Sure you can do it. \hypertarget is overlay aware, so you can say something like

\hypertarget<4>{label}{\beamerbutton{I'm on the fourth slide}}

to place the target just on the fourth slide of a frame and then elsewhere use

\hyperlink{label}{\beamerbutton{I jump to fourth slide of next frame}}

to activate a button that will take you to the fourth slide previously targeted.

A complete example:



\hyperlink{label}{\beamerbutton{I jump to fourth slide of next frame}}

\item First.
\item Second.
\item Third.
\item Fourth.\hypertarget<4>{label}{\beamerbutton{I'm on the fourth slide}}
\item Fifth.


In your example, you can also use



\hyperlink{label}{\beamerbutton{I jump to fourth slide of next frame}}

  \only<4>{Some text\hypertarget{label}{\beamerbutton{I'm on the fourth slide}}}

    Is also \hyperlink overlay aware? I mean, can I have a \hyperlink<6->{label} so that it would jump to the frame labeled label at overlay #6?

    @GertVdE Yes, it is. Oct 9 '15 at 13:29
  • How would you do this when using \pause instead of standard overlays?

    For me, \hyperlink<6->{label} creates a link that appears from the 6th slide. To jump to the frame at overlay #6 you can just add \hypertarget<6-> into the frame title.
